Summary
"In Between two worlds, historian Malcolm Gaskill tells the sweeping story of the English experience in America during the first century of colonization. Following a large and varied cast of visionaries and heretics, merchants and warriors, and slaves and rebels, Gaskill illuminates the often traumatic challenges the settlers faced. The first waves sought to re-create the English way of life, even to recover a society that was vanishing at home. But they were thwarted at every turn by the perils of a strange continent, unaided by monarchs who first ignored and then exploited them. As these colonists strove to leave their mark on the New World, they were forced -- by hardship and hunger, by illness and infighting, and by bloody and desperate battles with Indians -- to innovate and adapt, or perish. As later generations acclimated to the wilderness, they recognized that they had evolved into something distinct: no longer just English in America, they were perhaps not even English at all" -- Publisher's description
